The X Factor Australia – LMFAO Singer To Be One Of The New Judges

With the rumours continuing to swirl on who The X Factor judging panel this year, it appears Redfoo (surely not his real name) from pop band LMFAO is one of the new judges.

It is a good choice as he will appeal to the younger viewer. He will join Natalie Bassingthwaite, and Ronan Keating. The other person rumoured to be joining the panel is Dani Minogue.

The Herald Sun reports:

Confidential can reveal Seven has all but signed on the dotted line with former LMFAO frontman, Redfoo.

The writing was on the wall when the network shamelessly plugged the wacky singer throughout their Australian Open coverage.

The hairy rapper, who dates tennis champ Victoria Azarenka, is said to have impressed Seven executives when he was here, with plenty of wooing off court.

Stefan Kendal Gordy, aka Redfoo, certainly has the DNA to pick a star.

He is the son of Motown founder Berry Gordy Jnr, who discovered worldwide acts such as the Supremes, Marvin Gaye as well as the Jackson Five.

Meanwhile, Dannii Minogue has firmed as the other seat on the judging panel next to Ronan Keating and Natalie Bassingthwaighte.

The X Factor Australia to seen on SEVEN later this year.

I thought Mel B was still signed on for the upcoming season and she was just going to be flying back and forth between here and the US? Unless that’s changed?

The judging panel is going to be soooooo boring with those two added, in particular Danni. Ronan is acceptable but Nat is super boring plus hopeless as a mentor so all in all the show will lose it for me. I don’t get it, why is Danni popular choice for talent shows?? I was hoping for more interesting judges!

@ 2: Who would you recommend instead? The Australians on the judging panel in the past have consisted of D-Grade “celebrities,” including Natalie and Danni. Australia doesn’t exactly have a bursting pool full of talent like America or Britain, unfortunately, so they need to scrape the bottom of the barrel.

Altiyan Childs would’ve been a better choice for a judge than Danni. Seriously, installing Danni as a judge on a “talent” show is very ironic considering she’s completely devoid of talent and can’t sing for shit. At least Altiyan can sing, despite his questionable past, and he would’ve raked in quite an audience.

Danni’s paled in comparison to her superstar sister, so I guess her last resort is to give us all the false impression that she’s somehow “talented” by judging others. What a joke!

@3 Well I would have loved to see Megan Washington as a mentor. I was extremely impressed with her when she had a short role during The Voice. I think she was helping one of the main mentors. Otherwise Vanessa Amorosi would be interesting as she is outspoken and frank and would no doubt make much more sense in her advice etc. I am annoyed that they like to use ‘generic stars’ like Danni and Delta ( another super boring one)!

Goło i Wesolo…obviously you have been living under a rock for the past 20 years or so. Dannii IS the X Factor, Singer, Dancer, Actor, Fashion Designer….internationally successful, not like Nat Bass, & Guy Sebastian who have only experienced moderate success here in Australia.

Maybe you should read up on your facts before sounding off!

Altiyan Childs….are you serious??
